Part of the rapid development of this eastern edge of Trinity Park near South Ellerbe Creek in the years immediately after World War II, the first owner and occupant of this house appears to have been Jack E. Sessoms from at least 1948-1955.  The city directory for 1948 lists Sessoms as a salesman at the downtown clothing store, Van Straaten's.
